ARBOR CROSS STEP LONGBOARD
Plies: 6x Maple
Arborís old-school floater - the Cross Step is designed with a classic longboard shape. A surf-inspired rocker delivers an exceptionally forgiving flex, ideal for controlling speed, absorbing varied surfaces, and throwing big radius turns. A long, wide, flat profile supports footwork and nose ridding. The Cross Step features artwork from renowned surf artist, Rick Rietveld - a Southern California native, who co-founded Maui & Sons, and directed all of its artistic efforts through the 80ís.
Six Plys of Sustainably Sourced Hardrock Maple - Maple provides the best blend of durability and lightweight performance. It's also readily available and affordable, which allows us to offer a price point that is uncommonly low for an environmentally friendly alternative.
Sustainably Sourced Stringer-Pattern Deck - This hand-made power ply, built from a variety of sustainably sourced woods, creates a classic old-school look, while providing improved return and durability.
Recycled Glass Re-Grip - Each deck is gripped with long-lasting crushed recycled glass. This ultra clear grip surface allows the deckís natural grain and color to remain highly visible, while providing better performance than silica bead alternatives.
Water-Based Finishes - All Arbor skates are produced using a water-based sanding sealer and final finish to help protect the air we breathe, especially while skating.
Reclaimed Wood By-Product - All wood by-product created during the production of our skates is reclaimed for use in other Arbor products or by outside companies. This allows Arbor to stretch an important resource, while helping to reduce strain on landfills and forestlands.
